English Lakeland Ramblers - For over 25 years we have specialized
and excelled in providing walking and hiking tours
of some of the most spectacular and idyllic countrysides
of Scotland and England. Our hiking vacations in England
are in the exquisite Lake District and the charming
Cotswolds. In Scotland we ramble through the Highlands
and the islands off the northwest coast.
On Lake District walking and hiking tours, walking
trips in the Cotswolds and walking and hiking vacations
in Scotland's Highlands and on the Isles of Skye,
Harris & Lewis in the Hebrides, our local guides
are unsurpassed in experience, knowledge and congeniality
-- and in the earnest desire to ensure that your
walking and hiking trip meets, and exceeds, your
Lake District walking tours are offered both as single-hotel
based and in an inn-to-inn format. On these guided
walking trips you will enjoy invigoratingly fresh
air, peaceful waters, emerald meadows dotted with
sheep, and heather-clad hillsides. You are guided
on these six-and seven-day tours on robust walks
and hikes across vales and hills. Sightseeing by
minibus rounds out an appreciation of Lake District
history and culture.
Cotswolds walking tours feature lodging in the heart
of this enchanting region. The superbly scenic
countryside of rolling meadows and beech forests
lends itself to our gentlest series of walks. Steeped
in history, the tiny Cotswolds villages of honey-colored
limestone with thatched cottages cluster around
We offer this walk in classic Coast to Coast fashion. From the Irish Sea the North Sea - St. Bees to Robin Hood's Bay. The Coast to Coast Walk passes through some of the most beautiful and varied scenery that England has to offer - rugged mountains and beautiful lakes culminating with magnificent coastal scenery.
England's Coast to Coast walk has to be on any walkers "To Do" list. This route is often described as one of best hikes in the world.
In the north and west of Scotland lie the moody mountains
of the Highlands, Celtic mists and legends, heather-clad
hills and sparkling lochs, and a unique mixture of
scenic splendor and profound tranquility. Lakeland

the Highlands including the Isle of Skye, a walking
tour of the Scottish Highlands with three nights
on the Isle of Skye, and a Scottish hiking tour of
the Highlands and the Hebrides -- primarily on the
Isles of Skye, Lewis and Harris.
Two of our four Scottish walking tours focus primarily
off-shore on the Hebrides, a myriad of magical islands
which beckon you ever-westward to follow the arc
of the setting sun as it slides unhurriedly into
Wales Hiking Tours
Wales lies in the west of the UK, a landscape packed with mountain ranges, lush valleys, a rugged coastline and some charming towns. Wales has a vast network of trails and tracks used throughout Welsh history from the ancient Celts onwards. Our Wales Tour starts on the edge of the Black Mountains and by week's end you will be on the Pembrokeshire Coast. Your hiking will be through the mountains and to the glorious Wye Valley, on the border with England, an area immortalized by the poet William Wordsworth. Then we go west to the magnificent and wild Pembrokshire coast, home to some of the largest sea bird colonies in Europe. Fine guides and accommodations will accompany you throughout the tour.
